PACCAR Showcases Autonomous and Electric Trucks at CES

PACCAR, manufacturers of medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles , is exhibiting three vehicles at CES. The company will showcase a Level 4 autonomous Kenworth T680; a battery-electric Peterbilt Model 520EV; and a battery-electric Kenworth K270E.

Peterbilt and Kenworth designed these trucks for a range of customer applications, including over-the-road goods transportation, refuse collection and urban distribution.

The Kenworth T680 is an autonomous truck that demonstrates PACCAR’s commitment to developing self-driving commercial vehicles for its customers. Peterbilt Model 520EV battery-electric trucks are currently being field tested by customers. The trucks quietly collect refuse on residential and commercial routes, operating a full day on a single charge. Peterbilt expects to deliver Model 520EV trucks to customers in 2021.

The battery-electric Kenworth K270E is a medium-duty commercial vehicle with range options between 100 and 200 miles, ideal for local pickup and delivery operations. Kenworth expects to deliver K270E trucks to customers in 2020.
